Happy hour at the podcast for Clark and Christa?

Longtime listener here. Lately, while listening to the podcast, I have been hearing a persistent background noise which sounds as if someone is swirling ice cubes in their beverage glass. This is especially noticeable in the 9-13 podcast.

Hi groundhog, thanks for sending your feedback. I just listened to the Sept. 13 podcast again. I’m often with Clark and Christa in the studio when they record the podcast and I can confirm that they drink water sometimes during the podcast. (Staying hydrated!) The noise you may be hearing might be adjustments to the microphone during the segment. I’ll relay the feedback and see what we can do!
